Quantum: The Exhibition

Quantum information technologies are poised to transform how we live, work and play.

Ever heard of entanglement, superposition or the paradox of Schrödinger’s cat? Explore the very small and see how the world works on a micro-level. Meet the reluctant revolutionary who, in the 1900s, changed the course of how we understand the world on an atomic level and baffled Einstein with his “spooky” yet ground-breaking discovery. 

Learn about the science that brought you neon lights, lasers, MRI scanners and GPS tracking. Delve into the research stories behind quantum mechanics, information technology, and the future of quantum. Videos, games and multi-level interactive activities will challenge your understanding of the world as you know it.

Research is still in motion. See how quantum technologies will revolutionize computers, information security, medicine and geographical exploration. Get a glimpse into some exciting technologies on the horizon and leave with a new perspective on how the world works.
